obama. massachusetts governor and the boston mayor as well as yoyo ma, and mitt romney, long time boston resident will be in attendance. meantime, all around downtown, memorials are cropping up, makeshift memorials. there are flowers everywhere, jerseys hanging along the police barricades and a sign on one of the buildings that says boston doesn't blink. training for 2014 begins now. all of this comes this day of remembrance after a day of breakthroughs yesterday. and the breakthroughs include images, so many images available. this is one of them that was obtained by our nbc affiliate whdh that shows what appears to be a bag at the site of one of the blasts. that could be the bomb. there is also video that has not been released yet, an image of a man believed to be around six feet tall in a white or off white baseball cap that is certainly some of these authorities want to talk to. this video shows this individual putting a bag down near the scene of the second blast. some of the best pictures come from the surveillance camera on the front of the lord and taylor store, which is directly
that at this juncture except that he is in the hospital. president obama has addressed the nation and promised justice. but he made one mistake. the president called the attack a tragedy. it was not. it was a vial act of violence. designed to kill innocent people, including children. i was just in boston yesterday, and this makes me sick! so far no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. perhaps it's a coincidence but this week marks the anniversary of attacks in oklahoma city, columbine, colorado, and virginia tech. also the waco assault in 1993. joining us now from washington congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee. so, congressman, what can you tell us tonight? >> well, as you said, bill, this is absolutely horrific. it's detestable and has only the marks of a terrorist attack. in fact, the way it was carried out and to me there is no doubt in my mind that this is a terrorist attack. i know there is a person of interest, i guess they are calling him now. but, to me, this reminds me very much of the attack on times square in 2010 by shahzad and also we have t
's second term. four months after president obama called the country to action in the wake of the newtown shootings, using all of the power of the presidency to push gun safety measures, every measure he championed went down to defeat on the senate floor. when the compromise took shape, there was optimism they could get something through the senate but this bill to expand background checks for gun buyers only managed to win 54 votes. it needed 60 to move forward. >> shame on you! >> there will be order in the senate. >> the tucson shooting survivor who wrestled a third gun clip away from gerald loughner screamed when they heard the measure had failed and were escorted out of the capitol. four democrats voted no and four republicans voted for it. after the background check legislation which the white house believed had the best chance of passing was defeated. one by one the senate blocked proposals to ban assault weapons, limit magazines and by agreeing to a 60-vote threshold on all amends, democrats held off passage of republican amendments they believed would weaken or kill the bill. an
